March 2023

My essay, “In So Many Words,” appears in the March issue of The Literary Review of Canada. [https://reviewcanada.ca/magazine/2023/03/in-so-many-words/]. In it, I discuss how I came to write Pandexicon, and suggest that, for many of us, “the pandemic has marked a passage out of innocence and exposed pre-existing flaws in our health care systems and political leaders.” It has also changed forever the way we think of our neighbours and ourselves.
